The Need for InsideSports.PH
We believe that there is a compelling need for a well-rounded sports website that would focus primarily on the three sports which are most popular in the Philippines – boxing, basketball and billiards – and to provide a regular flow of news and information, features and opinions that would enhance interest in these sports as well as give sportsmen and women the exposure they richly deserve.
This does not mean that we will ignore other sports. We will not. Indeed the wider the coverage the more meaningful our mission would be. That mission is to develop a culture of sports and physical fitness especially among the young and thereby help in building the foundations for a healthy society.
We will also seek to reinforce much needed integrity in sports both on the official and competitive side and in the reportage.
In short, giving credit where credit is due.
We cannot, for sure, cover every event or mirror every opinion and would therefore have to depend on other journalists who provide valuable assistance and insights through their own efforts. But we will, whenever we use their stories, interviews or opinions make sure to give them the credit that is their just due including the mention of their names and their publications.
This will be done without fail because it is the decent thing to do.
We take pride in the relationships we have developed through many years with men and women in sports – not just athletes and officials but the movers at the highest levels. These relationships have been founded on mutual respect and a code of honor that sports people ought to live by in case some of them don’t.
This site is a collective effort of men who love sports with unbridled passion striving to serve as best we could, the sporting public whose support and confidence in us is paramount if we are to succeed.
We are embarking on a journey with good intentions. We hope you join us.
